Have you ever wondered what makes a team work? Leaders who are aware of the challenges and benefits of teams can lead more powerfully and make decisions that will maximize the effort of the collective. As team coaches know, without the foundations of common purpose, mutual accountability, and clear goals, even teams with talented people can get caught in conversations that go nowhere and create results that are less than desired. Great teams are made up of much more than individual skills. In the second part of their series on teams, guest host Chris Wahl and Alexander Caillet will explore some of the most important qualities of teams, and how both team leaders and members can cultivate those elements to create high performing teams that achieve desired results. Both Chris and Alexander are leadership coaches who have worked extensively with teams at a variety of organizations. Join them on July 29 for practical tips and strategies that can help your team perform for greater results.
